It is a new science that provides a valuable tool complementary to the already widespread neurosciences that bring attention to the mind-body connection and to the even more intriguing connection between the energy of thought and matter.

Nature teaches us that architecture is always morphology. All living forms are the expression of an idea, to mankind the merit of having "stolen" ideas from nature for its own purposes: if we want to collect a liquid the most functional architecture is that of the container, while if we want something slip away, the round shapes are obviously more appropriate. The shape of the material is inextricably linked to its specific characteristic. Man is a creature of nature and it is as if there was also an architecture of the body and face, where the form has specific functions and capabilities and is shaped by the thought form.

To a careful analysis the study of morphology (from the Greek morphé "form" and lògos "study") and physiognomics (from the Greek physis "nature" and gnosis "knowledge") of man reveals an equally indissoluble link between his thought form ( mind) and the shape of its matter (body).

The mind shapes the body and the body shapes the mind

Now imagine we are sad and unmotivated and we observe how our body and our face react to a thought of this type: for example we can see how immediately our gaze looks for the floor, the shoulders become limp, the face stretches into a snout endless, the eyebrows tilt down, the mouth curves taking a bitter fold, the body folds back on itself and also changes breathing, which goes down to the abdominal level.

Now imagine instead of being happy and motivated and once again we observe the reactions of the body and face: the gaze is high, the shoulders are beautiful straight, the face is open and receptive, the eyebrows tilt upwards, the mouth he smiles and takes an upturned fold, the body straightens up and even looks taller and the breathing is at the level of the lungs.

Now imagine having these two types of thoughts continued for weeks or months: the mental attitude (thought form) would sculpt the expression both in our global form and the specific one of body and face with certain lines.

Thought (mind) has shaped the form (body / face)

The study of the correlation between lines and thought has demonstrated without a doubt the existence of a correspondence, the same mindset leaves on different people of each race the exact same traces. For example, a determined and active person tends to have a square shape while an undecided and passive person tends to have a rounded shape. If a flying thought creates a fold on the face, the same thought repeated over time is imprinted in the flesh of the person as if it were on paper and creates an expression.

And as if it were paper from a book, at that point one can read his story, his biography, both mental and biological.


The roots of Morpho-physiognomy are rooted in the studies of Aristotle, Hippocrates, Paracelsus, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Franz Frederick Anton Mesmer, Claude Sigaud, Louis Corman, Paul Ekmann only to cite some sources.

After years of personal research in the classroom, study and more on over 7000 subjects, the “Morpho-Physiognomy Manual - Vol. I, is available in the best bookstores, online stores, libraries and over 720 university bookstores.
